Good luck, the MLK people keep the screws tight on any footage featuring him, they want very top dollar.

Forum: movies Subject: thanks for the heads-up, Spuzz

hey Spuzz, thanks for heads-up. i'll keep looking. long story short, i had a very vivid impression pop into my one day to make a music video of Debbie Gibson's "Only In My Dreams" video with footage of MLK at various marches, with the "I Have a Dream" speech in the middle.
"la lala la la, as real as it may seem, it was only in my dreams"

later that very same day, i was at a thrift store and found an old 80's tape, Orchestral Manoevers in the Dark (for 50c, so i got it.) when i got back in my car, the first song that played was called "Southern", and it had samples from MLK's "Mountain-Top" speech. i wasn't sure if i was dreaming or not.

long story short (too late) i will keep looking for quality footage, if i find any i will try to contribute it here.

thanks!
